i must say some thing now......
the reason for underrated drawing...
the main factor that counts the rate is POPULARITY ,
one must be popular, ie they must interact with people by rating commenting , must be active in forum, draw chats etc
and also one must not have any enemy ! becoz they turn into hate raters....
the main logic behind this is your drawing must become in "top drawings/ past 24hrs"......then it comes into top drawing past week...then to month....and in that page if your drawing is seen in 1st page sure...your drawing will score more than 100 rates....and so Popular...
TALENT IS NOT ALL THAT IS SEEN HERE..... disappointing in some ways....
i agree (not to sound dramatic) but the rating system can be a little bit corrupted. people who have a ton of friends get a ton of rates because their friends loyally rate all their drawings 5 hearts. if you are new to the site usually you have to be commenting drawings and talking to people, etc. for a quite a while before you can start getting a decent amount of rates. and sadly, hardly anyone goes through recent drawings rating stuff. in some ways, the rating system is just a popularity contest.
Again, I agree that the popularity issue definitely has an effect on ratings, but at the same time, friends can only have so much influence. If a drawing isn't good, it's usually not going to get a lot of ratings, because a fair share of those rates come from people who aren't even members of RMD, so they don't have any personal motivation to help the artist. Friends might give you enough rates to get your drawing to the "Hot Drawings" list so more people will notice it, but after that I think a drawing has to earn rates on its own merit. The reason for this forum is to help people who's work is really well done, but they may not be known well enough to get their drawings noticed in places like "Hot Drawings" where more people are likely to see and rate it.
I totally agree.
Oh, so this is where all the comments came from xD Great idea for a thread, I'm glad to see that Hiro turned up quite a bit :3
Aaaand I think tha's enough for now >_>
Edit: No wait, Lord_Raah already turned up...on the same page, too. -blind- Someone else, then :D

Just wanted to add the artists' names again, Nadin. I hope you don't mind.
I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm really happy to see all these artists' work everyone is posting. I'm surprised by how many of these drawings I've never seen, and I'm really active here! O.O
Thanks again everyone.
